v. 22- “…receive from him anything we ask, because we keep his commands and do what pleases him.” We have been talking in our prayer Bible study about “keys to effective prayer.” One of those keys is following Jesus’ commands. But here, John as a bit more, “and do what pleases him.” I think this goes a bit deeper. It gets at action and motive. By that I mean, God would not be pleased if I followed all his commands and all the time grumbled about it. However, he would be pleased is I did them out of love with the desire to please him.
